High hopes   Leave a comment

Floyd-ul din postul precedent mi-a starnit amintirile din studentie (ce mai faci Ovidiu batrane, mai sti cum ascultam Pink Floyd pe chinuitul tau magnetofon ?). Si goana din anii 90′ pentru a-mi completa colectia de albume pe casete – evident piratate… ce vremuri, nici nu stiam ce e aia „copyrights”!

Pentru cei mai tineri, sa amintim ca Pink Floyd a fost o formatie-cult a sfarsitului de secol 20 – se estimeaza ca a vandut peste 250 de milioane de albume in intreaga lume !

In acord cu tendintele anilor in care s-a infiintat (1964 – Cambridge), trupa a pus bazele unui nou gen muzical – rockul psihedelic. Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, si Rick Wright s-au sacralizat printre titanii rockului !

Intre marile lor albume (The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979), The Final Cut (1983), The Division Bell (1994)) s-au intercalat sute de memorabile concerte live – poate cel mai cunoscut fiind cel din 1990 de la Berlin cu The Wall – devenit un simbol al luptei impotriva dictaturii.

Pentru astazi va propun High Hopes de pe „The Division Bell”. Enjoy !

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the long road and on down to the causeway
Do they still meet there by the cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights OF that dreamed of world

****

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever …
